Tasting Notes

"The nose is zesty and filled with orange peel, followed by sugar-dusted grapes and potpourri with violets. The palate offers berries and dried apricots upfront, followed by cacao and hazelnuts, and on the back end, sandalwood, cedar, and black tea. The finish is soft and short with orange blossom water, clementines, tannic oak, and cinnamon."
